I am a front-end developer originally from the Utmost North
Karelia); currently living in Helsinki
and working for SC5 Online.
Before, I had been living Amsterdam for less than a year and previously in Moscow, Russia for 5 years and working for Yandex.
According to official papers, my name is
Varvara Stepanova, although most people just call me
More than 4 years I am a member of the BEM team. Our mission is to open source the full technological stack that powers the Yandex UI framework. Being a remote BEM developer I use the solutions in my current work and personal projects.
Besides the actual development of components, libraries and tools, I frequently speak at tech conferences, usually explaining the BEM methodology. I write articles in English and Russian, as well as tutorials and training projects to help developers perform their first dive into BEM. There are some links on the content page for your browsing pleasure.
I am keen on traveling and dream of having friends all over the world. If you're interested, here's the first personal thing to learn about me: I am passionate about cats, all of them (lions included).
On this site I publish my day-to-day writings as well as links to articles, projects and presentations.
This site is available in both English and Russian.
Here are some obligatory (but useful) links as well:
